    Looks like a "semi-reboot" -- they torched the loft, Madeline is moving out, and they killed Card (who I thought was going to be the "Big Baddie" for this season). It'll be interesting if they go in a different direction or if they just line everything up within the new reality.

    Burn Notice is always on a semi-reboot.

    Each bad guy is simply replaced by a new bad guy.
    I still watch but the repetition is making it not must see TV.

    I was sorry to see the loft go and what's that say? :)

    I live in South Florida and followed filming of the show for a while. They used to shoot by Hollywood beach where I live. If I remember correctly, the studio rented out abandoned convention center property in Coral Gables, where Michaels loft was set up. A few years ago local government got greedy and decided to increase substantially rental of this property. At the time production company agreed, but I wonder if the contract is over and they decided to move out.

    No it's not as good as it used to be, but it's still a fun show.

    i'm pretty sure they moved in before the explosion ;)


    is michael shanks dead..id like him back as the bad guy

    who is gonna rescue the gang now without mom close by? or will mike have to go up north to help her out i wonder.

    finally someone actualy kills someone...was hoping he would put a bullet in his head vs actually working for him

    so why did mike always sleep on the 1st floor of his place vs up in that loft?

    Didja notice that Card said,

    "It was a glitch."

    You gotta bet that was an inside joke / tribute. Too bad they didn't call him Bob.

    It was a fire.

    Yep. It was.

    It looks like Sharon is leaving for sure. Look for them to kill off Jesse to save further on payroll.

    I have a hazy recollection of reading something earlier this year about the property undergoing some redevelopment, so the studio lost the access to the site. I think maybe there was also something about the (influential?) neighbors getting tired of the eyesore.

    Or not. :)

    They had set a few incendiary devices...and they were way too casual about getting out.

    I doubt Sharon is leaving, she may have a reduced role, but my guess that is her wish not necessarily the producers. They don't need to cut payroll as IIRC this is the highest rated show on basic cable so they can get good ad rates and also it has been syndicated, I just caught a rebroadcast of the premier on one of my local channels (wherein they bleeped the word "bitchy" -- both in the intro and at the point in the episode that the intro clip was cribbed from). They are about to hit the 100 episode mark, which means that they can go into "5 nights a week" syndication.
